It has been a long time coming, but MuMu, my large sidekick, and I just arrived to our new home in Mexico just this morning. We could NOT have done this transition as healthfully and nicely as we did without the help of a whole bunch of people. So before we get to the rest of the photos, let me give a shout out to everyone who really stepped up and helped us.
Lindy Huber of Seldom Scene Farm outside Lexington, Kentucky. Lindy let The Lady and The Man and the rest of their small pets live in a cute cabin on their gorgeous farm while MuMu and I got to stay in a pasture near the woods all summer. What a great vacation that was! I had never before seen alpacas, llamas and sheep up close. They’re cute!
Mike Alexander of Equine Express got us from Kentucky to Texas swiftly and completely hassle-free. Every horse should be lucky enough to ride with pros like those.
Linda and Mary Kitzmiller let us layover on their “Rancho Not So Grande”. Mary is a top notch natural horsemanship trainer and I enjoyed learning a little something from her. Linda makes fun colorful art things. They are awesome. Her business name is Cry Baby Creek, lol.
Finally, Kerim Talmas of Cavaletti Equine Logistics arranged our quarantine on the US side of the border, the crossing and our transport down to San Miguel de Allende. His driver, Tomas, took great care of us and the five yearlings that were riding in the other slots of the big rig. If we had bumped into Kerim earler we would have been able to arrive sooner, but let me tell you, we were glad to have him as a part of our team. Crossing legally into Mexico as a resident horse is a bit of a tricky business. Kerim makes it look easy!
Also: The Lady and The Man are forever grateful to their totally rockin’ awesome new neighbor, Miguel Valverde of Don Juan Xito – Cabras, our new town. He served as the final contact point between Tomas and Home, interpreting events as they unfolded for we who don’t speak Español yet!
